Apps are at the front and center of any smartphone experience, and with over a million apps on the Google Play Store and new apps being submitted to our forums every day, staying up to date on the latest apps and games can be a hassle.

Polar Pace – First Pre Alpha Released
If you like racing games on Android and feel like lending a hand to a starting dev, please check out the game that XDA member bobhoil has made for us. Not an awful lot is said at the moment, but the dev is looking for testers (preferably with various devices) to check compatibility of the game. From the brief description, the game is basically a snowmobile racing game in 2D, which will later grow into a 3D game.
Remember, most good games start out small. So, lets give this new coming dev a hand and leave some feedback on his project.
